Sticking Door Handle

Weird problem...

My driver's side door handle has started sticking when I use it - and when it sticks up, I can't close the door properly unless I get out of the car and push it back down.

Any ideas how to fix it?

Thanks : )

WD40 is not a lubricant, it is so light you'll be reapplying it forever, use some white spray grease or copperslip.
